Time Peace

General/Column No Response

Time stood still.

A parade of events pulled at her skirts
and finally she dug in her heels.

Moments ground to a halt and toddled, bewildered.

Time closed her eyes
and drew in her breath,
smoothing her hair in a vacuum of constancy.

Breathing out
she stepped forward,
gathering Instances and Occasions in her fleshy arms,
once again
propelling them along.
